Javelin Marketing Provides Blog With Advice for Financial Advisors During Bear Markets

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - June 30, 2008) - A previous survey by Javelin Marketing showed that the #1 challenge of advisors is prospecting for new clients. In a bear market and dicey economy, that challenge expands to keeping clients. Investors see that:

1. they are losing money

2. yet they must continue paying their advisors a fee

3. and they pay another fee to the third party manager who is actually managing their accounts

It's no wonder that investor's ask "why am I paying two fees and losing money?" In fact, a recent survey by Spectrem Group summarized that clients who have advisors are turning to outside resources [the Internet] to meet their needs.
